Cum sociis natoque penatibus et magnis

    I have been making quilts since 1983. Throughout my career my quilts have been distinguished by unusual fabrics from my early wool quilts to my more recent use of non-traditional materials including straight pins and barbed wire. I take an intuitive approach to my work letting the fabrics and textures guide the design.

    Among my many quilting activities are curating quilt exhibits and teaching. My exhibits have been seen at the Wisconsin Quilt History Project, Cedarburg, WI., Katie Gingrass Gallery, Milwaukee, WI and the Fine Furnishing Shows, Milwaukee, WI. I have taught around the country and teach quilting to sixth, seventh and eighth graders as part of the art curriculum at a Milwaukee private school.

    My quilts have been displayed in invitational and juried art and quilt shows including Quilt National ‘93, Fantastic Fibers, and Materials Hard and Soft and have traveled to Japan, New Zealand, and the Republic of Georgia. My work has been published in books and magazines and are included in several corporate and private collections.
